GSD Puppy Feed
I have a new GSD puppy who is now going on 16 weeks. I have struggled with his diarrhea for a while now. I have taken him to the vet and although he used to have caccidea and giardea he is now clear of all the parasites (tested twice). He appears to be super sensitive with his GI. Right now I am keeping him on rice and boiled ground beef. I used to feed him rice and boiled chicken but that worked for a while than back to diarrhea again. I am also adding Hills GI diet kibbles to his rice and ground beef (vet recommendation). I bought Large Breed Puppy Fromm food that he was on for a little while but have not fed him that food in a while. He has been doing really well on rice and ground beef but I am worried he is not getting all the nutrients that he needs for the growth. This past weekend we went to a GSD training and the trainer is very adamant about giving puppy cut up hot dogs as treats but I know he gets diarrhea eating those. So I ended up giving him hot dogs during his training and sure enough he got the runs. I am just beside myself how sensitive he is and not sure if he will be on rice and ground beef for the rest of his life. I don't mind cooking for him but I want to find a well balanced diet for him. Anyone has any insight and/or suggestions?
P.S We did blood work and everything looks good. The vet says we can do GI test but she thinks he is too young to have that problem and doesn't think that's the issue.
Thanks in advance!
